Learn a bit more

Kia ora koutou

I hope you are all fabulous. My name is Melanie Boyle and I’m thrilled you are curious enough to learn a bit more. So, getting straight to the point… I have clocked up 20 years of leadership experience working with, advising and delivering to Chief Executives and senior leaders, as well as coaching and building high performing leaders and leadership teams.

I have been living my dream. Immersed in the fascinating world of leadership.

In 2016 a spark ignited in my belly. It was time to reassess my career and reflect on my future. I have always been an advocate, coach and mentor for our young wahine but I suddenly realised it was time for me to honour my joy and purposefully pursue this path. My soul had its call to action and I was excited.

By 2020 millennials will be the biggest workforce on the planet and I wanted my future to be focused on preparing our young women to be the great leaders they are destined to be. It is time to maximise this talent and empower these women to self-initiate and navigate a successful leadership career. Jacinda Ardern could not have come along at a better time! Wahina toa! Anything is possible.

I look forward to connecting with you all on this journey. It is time for all of us to Step Forward and create a robust women in leadership pipeline.
